Child participation in family economic activities fosters child development and is one amongst fundamental principles of the Conventions on the rights of the child (CDC), which as a nation we adopted. It exerts children and young people having the right to freely express their opinions,
listened and confidently present matters affecting them within their families, leaders,
public services, institutions and judicial procedures. At Community's
Expertise for Development Contributions (CEDC),
we value child and young people safe and appropriate a key strategic priority. This ensures sustained child well being and making societies responsive in advocating and protecting the rights of the child. We welcome children development partners around the globe to support children participation attaining their wellbeing.
